Reaction Turbine Demonstration Unit
- Small scale hydropower unit designed to demonstrate the operating principles of a reaction turbine.
- Horizontal shaft and transparent guarding allow excellent visibility.
- Mounts on a dedicated service unit.
- Connects to a PC via the service unit and a USB interface console.
The Reaction Turbine Unit consists of an
inlet manifold which supplies water to a central hub. Water exits the
hub radially through two square orifices. The hub is connected to the
manifold using a graphite face seal. The turbine is mounted on a
horizontal shaft with a clear acrylic splash guard to allow maximum
visibility of the workings The unit incorporates a pressure sensor to
measure the inlet condition of the water. This pressure can be
accurately controlled using the software supplied with the service unit.
